I had done a lot of research on restaurants before our Destin vacation and this place was highly recommended so we definitely wanted to try it. Several reviews had suggested not judging by location/looks of the place. How true this was! So there is a Dewey Destin that we passed on the main strip several times but that is not... More

Third year for us to go back and probably about the sixth time to eat at this little hidden gem. There's no air conditioning which was fine for us we enjoy watching the boats come by from crab island. The food has always been wonderful. Soft shell crab sandwich is awesome and my 9 year old got crab claws and... More

On our honeymoon in Destin we asked some locals where we should eat, and they suggested Dewey Destin's. I ordered the pecan crusted grouper and it was amazing! About 4 years later we were on vacation with our whole family an hour away. On our last night there we suggested that everyone make the hour long drive to go eat... More

We had to wait a little over an hour but that was expected after calling ahead and reading previous TA reviews. The addition of drinks and appetizers while you waited helped to pass the time. You have to try the smoked tuna dip!! Once inside the service was great and the food was worth the wait.

We have missed Dewey the last few trips because of the crowd and long wait. I am regretting not braving the line in trips past. The food was great. The big difference was the advice from Gabby, our server. She was absolutely spot on in recommending exactly the right late lunch/early dinner to all of us rookies. We have not... More

The fish and shrimp tasted very good but they don't give you much. I was expecting a plate full of shrimp, only got four and about three or four fish stick looking things. Ridiculous! Our bill, for four people was over $90. Heard the food is good but we won't go back.

Pick your time to arrive, or have something to help you pass some time. But...it's worth the wait. The friendliest restaurant in Destin. They have the formula down, and it works! Great food, friendly, patient employees. Even their carry out food is great.

Nice shack on the bay. Really pump some food out. Had the Tuna, corn and potatoes. Really good. Could split with someone or wolf it down...like me. Good place. Ate outside watching boats and bay. Good job!

We showed up at 5:30 on Tuesday, July 15 with a party of four adults and three children. The children set in regular chairs. We explained we could sit at two tabkes. The rude hostess said we would have a 2 hour wait time. She then told the next party they would have a 30 minute wait time. We asked... More
